The Maryland State Police in cooperation with CAASA (Calvert Alliance Against Substance Abuse) and the Calvert County Sheriff’s Office hosted a Prescription Drug Take Back Day on Sept. 26 at five different locations within Calvert County. The take back day netted 300 pounds of unused prescription drugs.
The drop off locations are available seven days a week, 24 hours a day in a continuing effort to keep prescription medications out of the wrong hands. Keeping a household free of unused prescription medications is an important step to curtailing the prescription drug abuse issue in Calvert County.
The drop off locations are: Maryland State Police, Barrack U; Calvert County Sheriff’s Office; Northeast Community Center in Chesapeake Beach; Mt. Hope Community Center in Sunderland; and Southern Community Center in Lusby.
